Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.

Hull are “disappointed with one point” against Arsenal – Wenger out! 5

Posted on October 19, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal now find themselves 11 points behind League Leaders Chelsea after their 5th draw from their first 8 games, but as the Gunners only equalised in the 91st minute the Hull City manager Steve Bruce is upset that his team only came away with a point.

He said after the game: “The players are disappointed because they’ve gone close again and the frustration is that it’s happened four times to us now this season, conceding late on,”

“But we are disappointed because we could only take a point from Arsenal.

At least Arsenal’s injury situation is looking better! 1

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

There was not a lot of signs of improvement from the Arsenal players on the Emirates pitch against Hull yesterday, with a last gasp goal from Danny Welbeck only enough to rescue a point. Our bluntness in front of goal matched with our lapses at the back was typical of what we have been seeing from Arsenal so far this season.

But there is a strong argument that a lot of our troubles have come about because of the long injury list. Any team is going to miss players of the calibre of Walcott, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny and now Ozil, but if there was not much encouragement on the pitch yesterday, the situation off it is more promising.

Man City to make cheeky bid for Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil! 0

Posted on October 18, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal are used to making large profits from selling our best players to Manchester City (or letting them go for free!) but I am shocked to think that Wenger would let them get Mesut Ozil in January.

There have been many Arsenal rumours linking Ozil with a return to Germany, but a report in the Express suggests that the League Champions are considering a bid.

The report says: “Ozil has been in lacklustre form for the Gunners after playing for Germany at the World Cup this summer and is now expected to miss up six weeks with a knee ligament injury.

Same old story at both ends for Arsenal 0

If you are looking for an explanation as to why Arsenal struggled to rescue a draw with Hull City at the Emirates today and only managed it with a stoppage time equaliser from Danny Welbeck, there are two simple reasons. The Gunners are still struggling at either end of the pitch.

You cannot blame Wojciech Szczesny for any of the four goals scored in the last two Premier League games, but Mertesacker and Koscielny have both made mistakes and the fact the defensive part of the squad is not strong enough has been made crystal clear by the injury situation. We cannot seem to keep a lead for long and our clean sheets have disappeared.

As we know all too well, the international break left Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with even more injury problems to worry about. The injury list on the website has a staggering 11 first team players on it, but actually things are not quite as bad as they seem.

Two of those players, Walcott and Gnabry, played for 45 minutes and an hour respectively last night, while Monreal, Arteta and Rosicky are supposed to be available for today’s Premier League visit of Hull City. And then Sanogo and Ramsey are due back in the next game or two so the problems actually seem to be easing off.

Walcott, Gnabry and Diaby hand Arsenal BIG boost 0

Arsene Wenger is playing it as safe as he can with the Arsenal players returning from injury it seems. Hopefully the Frenchman is listening to his medical staff and the new fitness and conditioning expert Shad Forsythe and hopefully this will lead to the current injury problems not being continued throughout the whole season.

It already seems to be getting better and the under 21 game against Blackburn Rovers last night produced a huge boost for Arsenal and our chances of having another successful season. Theo Walcott, Serge Gnabry and Abou Diaby all came through their parts in the game unscathed and looking good.

Walcott NOT to be rushed back to Arsenal First XI 0

At last Theo Walcott is finally approaching full fitness and he managed to come through the first 45 minutes of the Gunners reserve match last night, but after so long on the sidelines he is not expecting to be rushed back into the first team.

He said after the game: “It was good, nice to get a little blow out, it’s a been a hard, long, nine months, and first I’ve got to say a massive thank you to all the Arsenal medical team because without them I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’ve done.

The next few weeks could determine how Arsenal’s season shapes up 0

While playing Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea in 3 of your first 7 games could be considered a tough start to the season, picking up 2 points from a possible 9 in those games isn’t going to do you too many favours going forward. Arsenal, having a relatively easy run of fixtures starting against Hull City later today, thus cannot afford to drop their guard and lose any more points from now till the end of November, when they play Hull City, Sunderland, Burnley, Swansea City, Manchester United and West Brom in the Premier League. In addition, why the next few weeks could prove crucial to Arsenal’s season?

I hope that I am wrong about this but I get the feeling that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players might be taking their eyes off the ball a little bit. Maybe it is because the Gunners did the double over tomorrow’s opponents Hull City in the Premier League last season, scoring five goals without reply, but it is a dangerous game to play.
